I am grateful for the lifting and the shoveling and the endless measuring. I am thankful for the opportunity to create something. I am thankful that Dub likes to invest his time in my projects.
We worked and reworked the design to accommodate my love of sunshine and to work around the sprinkler system. It feels good for the edges of my fingers to be raw and for the muscles in my forearms to ache. It feels good to feel a physical pain and sweat (even if it is almost November). It feels good to think about problems that have solutions.
